This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

This special event is a collaboration between 'The Human, Earth Project' and Blue Dragon Children's Foundation, an anti-trafficking organisation that has rescued over 1,000 people from slavery. 

The 'Sisters for Sale' documentary has won awards for exceptional filmmaking and courageous storytelling at film festivals around the world. This event marks the end of the 'Sisters for Sale' exhibition of photography and stories at Lighthouse Arts, on Newcastle's iconic Nobbys headland, which is open every weekend in May. 

Young women on the border between Vietnam and China find themselves caught between a violent custom and a vicious criminal underworld. Investigating the mysterious disappearances of his local friends, an Australian author uncovers a human trafficking crisis and sparks an incredible series of events. Betrayed, stolen, and sold into forced marriages with strange men, two teenage friends are forced to make the heartbreaking choice between their baby girls and their own freedom.

The event will be held at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Bolton Street. Doors will open at 6.30pm. The 90min screening will begin at 7.00pm, and will be followed by a Q&A with director, activist, and author Ben Randall, and with Kim Miller of Blue Dragon. Blue Dragon's founder Michael Brosowski played a key role in the 'Sisters for Sale' story.

The incredible 'Sisters for Sale' book series will be available at specially discounted prices for collection at the event. All sales help fund the fight against human trafficking, and Ben will be signing books after the screening.
